Not one of the positive features but unfortunately it seems like there was no chance to avoid adding self-managed blocklists here at LumberJocks. Requested by many members recently I believe this new feature will be vital for further growth and good atmosphere here. When you choose to block someone, it means they: Can’t comment on your profile Can’t comment on your posts (projects, blog entries, forum topics, reviews, workshop) Are removed as your buddy, and you are re...
The wheels on the top secret project go round and round, round an….... Ok, I’ll stop that since the one I’ve worked on so far isn’t going around too well.I (William) am making a seperate post on the wheels since it has been my biggest fiasco of this project thus far. We (KTMM and I) changed the design of the wheels from the plan to use the material we had. I had this grand idea on how to true the circumference up balance it on my lathe. This post will start with the...

Hi Everyone; It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. The table project has been side tracked for a while, due to some health issues but I’m back at it now. The three pedestal bases are finished. I’ve also started posting the construction details on one of my wood working websites: http://www.myhomewoodshop.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=72:17-foot-dining-room-table-part-1&catid=82:dining-room-tables&Itemid=63 ...
Based on your suggestions, I’ve finally added Donations page! So now you can support LumberJocks financially by donating money through PayPal (note that PayPal also accepts all the major credit cards). Donated money will be used to cover the growing hosting fees, to buy banners and spread the word about our website and to make our unqiue Awards and Challenges even better… maybe I will also buy one-two beers if possible ;) You can choose between donating once or making a recurri...
Yes I was careless and in a hurry and had been up since 2:30am and had just taken the guard off two days ago to rip some 3” stock and failed to put it back on the tablesaw.. I was pushing through a piece of Purpleheart and reached over the piece to pull it on through and it pulled my right hand into the blade. I lost the end of my right ring finger, and it took a good bite out of my middle finger. It”s about 8:30am and my wife is trying to get hold of a hand surgeon because It als...
To keep things seperated nicely, this post will start into the assembly process. I (William) have started assembly of certain sub-assemblies. The assembly of the entire thing cannot begin in earnest until KTMM gets back to Vicksburg to do some of his magic on the frame. Some of the sub-assemblies though that are already to a finished state, I’m taking the liberty of going ahead with some of them.So,I ended my last post with the for trunnion assemblies already partially done.To assemble ...
Not going to clench cut nails for hinge install because my cut nails are truly vintage and will break rather than bend. Because of the thickness of the lid skirt, two shorter screws are needed at the base of the three-hole hinge, with one long wood screw good for the top in that it goes through the skirt and into the panel of the lid. Chose the hardware from the parts drawer, and moved out. Clamped the hinge tight, tapped starter holes and drove the screws home. The next pic...

Not sure who all heard the news for today, but a lawsuit was won against Ryobi for not incorporating blade stop technology on their saw. This guy apparently fed his hand through the tablesaw and Ryobi is to blame for not protecting him. I hope this gets overturned. I believe blade stop is a good thing to have available but there is a reason why I do not have a SawStop which has to do with cost. If this goes through, there are going to be a ton of lawsuits filed against many saw manufacturer w...
